Actor & Entertainer Photography
You’re in a creative profession and we understand that you need both versatility as well as eye-catching photos. We detect your unique characteristics and bring them to center stage with artistry and style. In order to get the best result possible, we create a comfortable and laid-back atmosphere so that you are at your most relaxed and natural. Additionally, styling is available, if requested, and we’re always willing to travel to various locations in the city for a variety of muted background options. Our goal is to deliver a flattering, interesting and representative depiction of you. If you opt for two headshots, we can do both a studio shoot and a location shoot.

A good choice for actors and performing artists needing ONE great high res, printable image of your choice, with retouching included. Also includes 2 8x10 prints of the chosen images and up to 45 minutes in studio. Additionally includes all viewer proofs on a disc: these are images, large enough to view on your computer, from which you can choose your favourites.

For the professional that needs two different looks for added versatility and options. This includes TWO great high res, retouched printable images of your choice, 4 8x10 prints (2 of each of the chosen images), as well as up to 1 hour in studio.

We have styling services, clothing and accessories available for some shoots, depending on the subject matter. Props can also be rented, with additional fees dependent on resources required. We offer budget-friendly, creative solutions for your needs.
For a polished and professional portrait, we recommend that both our male and female clients hire a professional makeup artist. Modern digital camera technology paired with pro lenses pick up even minute flaws not visible to the naked eye. Retouching can be expensive, thus the cost of a makeup artist is worth every penny, and can be more economical in the long run. We have a professionally trained makeup artist, who has been working with us for close to 10 years. She always creates a flawless canvas, yet very natural result. Our clients are always pleased with their decision to hire her.
Modern digital technology picks up the appearance of skin (pores, lines, scars) with hyper-real precision. Our approach is to naturally retouch your favourite images, so that the skin appears as it would in person, in real-life, as opposed to under a microscope. We strive to maintain skin texture and typically erase “temporary” skin conditions such as blemishes, and only soften the looks of lines, scars, wrinkles, rather than completely erase these marks of character. In special cases, where applicable or by your request, heavy-handed retouching can be used; however, we discourage this, as in most cases it’s important to present an accurate representation of the subject. In any case, our preferred method is emphasizing your best features, whether it is your eyes, hair or smile. We typically naturally brighten teeth 1-2 shades, unless you request otherwise.
